half a century

January 10th, 2011 at 01:18 pm

Well I made it to half a century, and with any luck I might make another half a century Smile It was a little iffy for a while last year on if I would make the half century mark. My brother died at 44 and didn't make it. The way I feel now though, you wouldn't know I was so sick last year. The only way to tell is by all the scars on my stomach from the surgeries.

Periodically I ask myself if you had a million dollars or if you knew you only had 6 months to live what would you change? The only thing I could think of last night was if I knew I only had 6 months to live I would try to get rid of a lot of my stuff to save my relatives from having to deal with it. I'm going to try to do some of that anyways this year. I want most of my stuff, but need to weed out the files and get rid of some of the things I don't use anymore.

But my life is pretty good the way it is. I just always feel so happy about the way I'm living now.

For my birthday I got 50 swagbucks. I also got a really nice jigsaw puzzle that looks challenging and a surge protector that automatically shuts appliances off when not in use, and a really cool space heater. It's a ceramic tower with a remote control. I can sit in my chair and turn it on/off, make it move back and forth, set it on a timer for 1 - 4 hours, and change the heat from 65 - 95 degrees. I really like it. My philosophy has always been to heat me and not the whole house.

After walking today mom and dad took me out to Village Inn for lunch, even though they already paid for lunch yesterday. Mom felt really bad that I didn't want a celebration for my birthday and have cake. I told her I didn't want a celebration and I would rather have pie than cake anyways. So she was bound and determined I would have a piece of pie. She wanted dad to go get it to give it to me after our walk, but he said lets just eat lunch there and get it then. So that's what we did. I got a piece of lemon supreme pie to go. That's my favorite.

I finished reading my book The Mage's Daughter by Lynn Kurland. Sci/Fi - very good.

    Contentment with one's life is a rare and invaluable thing, especially in America (we're a restless bunch Wink)! Happy birthday and congratulations on achieving something so precious.
